Is Biden single-handedly turning this from a campaign of Hope and Change to "dope" and "chains?"

with no record to run on, and no new
Ideas, it seems to me the campaign is all negative. Do we have 98 more days of this??

Obama wants to win at any cost. He's just making himself look bad.

I don't think Biden is trying to incite a race war. I think it's more of a matter of him forgetting to engage his brain before putting his mouth in gear, which he seems to have a habit of doing.

I have to admit, the reason I liked him 4 years ago, was that he had a Positive image and an upbeat message. I'm stunned by the campaign tactics this year. I've seen a lot of BS politics over the last 25 years... but this is just depressing.

I'm right with you, shinypate1. I'm getting...no, I've been sick of hearing all the negativity from both sides. It's time that they stop spending so much money (which could be used to oh, I don't know, feed some hungry children in America) on bashing each other up side the head and start outlining how they plan to get the US back on track.

Perhaps we could start a Citizens for Campaign Reform group and pester Congress to pass some sort of law prohibiting the kind of back and forth crapola we've seen. Oh wait...they do the same thing when they're running!!

Romney/Ryan have a plan. Obama attacks because he has nothing to run on. A total failure.

When your boy asked "Why do Republicans hate America" you sand a different tune. It seems that it is OK for your fellow travelers to stir thing uo but not the people that hold different beliefs.
The message is in context. Biden stated to an audience with a large group of African-Americans that the GOP "wants to put y'all back in chains". Now go ahead, do your best to spin that one. His BS afterwards was an admission that he knew he screwed up and put it into damage control mode.

Watched the speech. It's in context and hatefully racist. I cannot support his reelection. Biden has to go.
Report as
Biden's words were meant to counter Republican promises to "unshackle" the economy from regulations. Biden himself later said he had intended to use the word "unshackle," and that "it's their policies and the effects of their policies on middle class America" that is "outrageous.
Report as
I don't believe that Biden is a stupid man. I don't think he'd made a mistake. He knew his audience and he said exactly what he wanted to say. He wants to excite his base and he did. He does not care if he offends some people. He knows that thoes he offends were never going to support him or Obama. All he wants to do is get his base fired up. Both obama and Biden want to be reelected. They don't care what they have to do for that to happen.

Walking back the comment and spinning like a top does not change his remark. Race baiting all the way.

BTW, I take it as a compliment that you take the time to reply to my questions and comments. I very seldom manage to actually communicate with Liberals. Not many will admit to it in NM. They are too busy hiding from the anger over DCs refusal to compromise.

He meant every word he said.
His only goal is to get reelected and, like his Dear Leader, will say anything to reach that goal. He doesn't want the gravy train to end for them.
What ever he said later was a feeble attempt to lie his way out of his race baiting rant.

Don't waste your breath guys. Grand has his opinions and facts will never get in his way.

Boo the facts are he said what he said. If he meant something else then he should have said something else. Geeze, he even tried to sound black. It was extremely offensive.

When Democrats quote controversial stuff from the Repugnants they always say, wow you are really taking this out of context - now something was taken out of context and you are saying he meant what he said sounds like a double standard to me

Ain't that the truth. I have never seen this country so divided in my life. Obama looks at Americans as black, white, Hispanic, women, rich, poor, Wall street, gays, young and never as WE ARE ALL AMERICANS!!!! He uses race/class to get votes and this time he will loose them (by a landslide). Start packing Obama cause you can leave OUR White House.

Dirty Chicago politics. Shame on him. He is a disgrace to the office of President. And that's just Obama! Biden has turned from a beloved senior senator into a racist boot licker for the left. Shame on the both of them. Start packing Obama. It is time to clean up the dirt occupying OUR White House. Back to Chicago where you were taught these nasty tactics.
Don't forget how they did this to Hilary too. tsk tsk tsk

What they don't show during hillary"s
Run against Obama , Hillary stated publicly what a piece of lying cheating crap he is. Cnbc won't play that video.
I'm not a Hillary fan but that election was stolen from her and as much as I hate to say it she would have done a better job. Obama is a failure and a lying race baiting crook along with his buddy holder. These blind rats being led. To the river are going to regret there vote 2 years from now and won't have a job house ability to support themselves and no whinning from them they voted for it they deserve it
Young black Americans 13 % on unemployment under bush. Under Obama it's 28% unemployed and growing. He doesn't even care about his main voting block. Janet Jackson sAid it best what have you done for me lately?? Nothing unless your an illegal taking our jobs. Vote your wallet not color or pay the price

That's so weird! I don't know what all ads everyone else sees - I heard on a news program somewhere that they have different ads in different states. I live in a swing state, Ohio, so apparently we're getting a lot more of the negative ads to try and sway us to the "right" side.

Anyway, there was a Romney ad a few weeks ago that was in response to an Obama ad (there are so many I can't recall what it was about). In the ad they played a few seconds of Hillary stating that Obama had lied about her and it ended with Hillary saying, very forcefully, "Shame on you, Barak Obama!".

Is that what you're referring to?

If I was black I believe I would have been offended when he said that. What pissed me off the most is he used a southern slang word that I don't feel he is qualified to use. Y'all back in chains. When a person from the south uses it its part of normal conversation. When a yank uses it they are usually making fun of someone in the south. In this case it was the blacks.

I am, and it did. I could go on for hours about the race-baiting pseudo pity that my country oozes from every pore, under the sickening guise of "Equality."

I'm a reasoning intellectual human equal in all things... stop treating me like I'm some lower order primate that can be lured with banannas, scared with fire and incapable of caring for myself.

That's why it made me mad too. I don't like someone that talks down to me. When he used the word Y'all that let me know he thought he was getting down on their level. And it pissed me off.

Biden is a human gaff machine. Every day, a new gaff. And he can't explain it either; when he tried to say "i meant unshackled" it makes NO sense in that speech.
I used to be a democrat. I would have rejected this verbiage even then. But now I just hate the divisive talk as we have to pull together; this divisive stuff is how we get Holder in court, and we don't need that. There are more important battles to fight.
